If you've driven along some of the roadways on the eastern section of League City you've probably noticed construction work taking place inside and along the medians. This work is part of a Texas Department of Transportation project that's providing landscape improvements along the major TxDOT corridors within our City including FM 518, FM 646, FM 2094, and SH96.
The improvements, which cost over $2 million, are completely funded by TxDOT as part of their Green Ribbon Award Program. The work includes the construction of plant beds inside the medians, irrigation installation, and the purchase and planting of a large variety of trees, shrubs, and other landscaping.
The City's Project Management Team and the Parks Department worked with TxDOT to choose plantings that could withstand the exhaust of vehicles. The result is a large palette of plantings including Live Oaks, Gulf Muhly, Dwarf Texas Palmetto, Crepe Myrtle, and much more.
The median improvements are expected to be complete in the fall of this year.
